This text covers the essentials of transportation engineering, planning and management using an interdisciplinary approach. It includes a wide spectrum of topics, encompassing both traditional principles - traffic engineering, transportation planning - and non-traditional considerations - transportation economics, land use, energy, public transport, and transportation systems management. Both quantitative and policy-oriented topics are incorporated, each supported by numerous worked examples and problems of varying complexity. This edition: reflects recent information and techniques drawn from publications by the Transportation Research Board's Highway Capacity Manual; references the latest computer programs in the public and private sectors; updates coverage of geometric design to reflect recent revisions of AASHTO's Geometric Design; and expands coverage of transportation economics, traffic flow and transportation systems management.This text covers the essentials of transportation engineering, planning and management using an interdisciplinary approach.
